Black-In-Lack' of Luck!
What is luck? Some opine that it's another term for coincidence, whereas some feel that it is success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than one's own actions. Well, it's all up for grabs
While New Zealand (donning Black that’s considered as inauspicious in many communities) battled it out on the field; not effortlessly enough, England chewed their morsel of luck more than they could imagine!
We have mentioned more than often that Black is an inauspicious colour and must be avoided as much as possible.
Despite reaching so close, being 2 times finalists, with best of legends like Crowes, Hadlees’s & McCullum’s New Zealand hasn't won a single World Cup in 44 Years sporting Black.
They hardly win Triangular Series too!
Whereas, we had clearly hinted that the all blue English kit would do the needful!
See Pic posted days ago hinting this year’s England’s Jersey colour as best ever as per our reading!
It was indeed a miracle when Ben Stokes on his lucky date, 14th, got another life after being dropped by Boult at the boundary with just an over to spare!
That ball eventually landed on the other side of the rope resulting in a 6. If this is not about luck then what is?
With 3 balls remaining, Stokes got an additional 4 runs through the brush of his sliding bat after he dived for his second run. If this is not about luck then what is?
For the first time in the history of ICC World Cup, a Super Over decided the Champion of the tournament. Yet again, despite the Super Over ending in a 'Super Tie', England were titled World Champions merely on the basis of extra boundaries scored. If this is not about luck then what is?
Nothing to take away from NZ's hard work. Although it wasn't fair for NZ, luck did roll in favour of England
When 'Lady Luck' is on your side, faliure runs to hide!
And vice versa
